I want to send out a heartfelt thank you to the tapers out there.
I don't know how many days the archive has saved my butt -- I don't know how many days I have woken to find myself not wanting to get out of bed; but knowing that I had a fat bowl of cereal and the Dead or DSO to jam too somehow makes it all okay.
Thank you a bunch!!

Wow, how did I overlook this jewel!
Ever since we got cable internet, I've been one downloading fool. I thought I'd DL'd all of the best DSO shows available. I DL'd the mp3 for my Ipod to listen to while chasing DSO around the western US starting next week and DAMN if this show didn't just blow me away. OK, now I've put the mp3s on hold for a little bit while I DL this so I don't space it out while I'm on the road.
This is one of those overall EXCELLENT shows. I have nary a criticism. OK, it's an "original setlist" and I like to hear re-creations, but if this is the way DSO does origiinal setlists, then they can stop covering old Dead shows and just play the music as their muse moves them! Like the Dead did -- just start playing and see where you end up.
OK, I'll shut up. Do what I'm doing: download this show! You won't regret it. Too bad it can only be given 5 stars...

I haven't listened to tons of DSO downloads, but in my mind this is by far the best show I've heard. The original setlist makes it even better. I listen to it all of the time.

absolutely wonderful sound and performance. Bertha doesnt seem to burn well - seems fine from hard drive but not on cdr. Disc Three is the absolute balls. Check this out people. These guys can play - anyone into the dead will really appreciate disc 3 - stunning
